Description An impressive sculpture of a female Olympic swimmer in the Social Realism style. Social realism is the term used for an art movement that flourished between the two World Wars. In order to make art more accessible to a wider audience artists created realist portrayals of athletes and workers as heroic symbols of strength during a period of hardship after the Great Crash. Reminiscent and similar to American WPA art. This is a beautifully sculpted work of art in near perfect condition with very minor blemishes. Signed Georg Roch (1881-1943)
